BADEN BADEN, Germany (WILX) - A Banksy painting that shocked onlookers as it partially shredded itself after being auctioned off, is going on display in Germany.

On Monday Frieder Burda museum said that the 'Girl with Balloon' piece, which self-destructed last year, successfully bid 1.4 million dollars. It will go on display, starting Tuesday until March 3rd.

The painting was re-titled to 'Love is in the Bin' after shredding, and will be moved to another German museum on permanent loan.

The painting depicts a small girl reaching up toward a heart-shaped red balloon. It was originally created on a wall in East London, and has been endlessly reproduced, globally.
